that affect america, american jews, and israel, everything from the shift of power from the united states and the west to china and the east, the powers of globalization in the digital era , how to deal with the muslims and the world, the threats of iranian nuclear power i also look at internal threats, low birthrates, assimilation, and whether we can, in effect, succeed at that time when we are more successful than ever in being integrated into our society. it is a new phenomenon, and that is really why i wanted to write the book. i also right about that from an israeli perspective. have been to israel maybe 40 times. three times this year alone during that carter and clinton administrations have was deeply involved in policies between the u.s. and israel, but i also writes from the perspective of someone who has relatives in israel who has been many, many years and times in israel. so it is a unique perspective, looking from the outside and and from the inside out. >> israel was one of the few foreign policy issues in the 2012 campaign. mitt romney saying you won't see any sunlight. >>

[laughter] there were more late arrivals. now, why should this be? according to the standard economic reasoning, charging for something should decrease rather than increase the willingness to consume now. so what happened here? well, something similar to what was going on. before when parents came late, they felt guilty. they were imposing inconvenience on the teachers. but now they treated it as a fee for a service. like hiring a babysitter. and you don't feel guilty when you pay money to the babysitter to perform the duty of looking after your child. the attitudes changed. monetary payment change the relationship between the parent and the day care center and crowd out the sense of obligation to show up on time. wh
